Attendance policy

Whilst attending Scouts is not compulsory, it is very difficult to execute activities well that have been prepared for a full attendance when fewer Scouts attend.

If a Scout cannot attend a meeting for any reason we ask that we be informed as soon as possible so that we do not delay starting our activities.

If a Scout does not attend for 3 consecutive weeks, without informing a Leader in advance, it will be assumed that they no longer wish to be a member. If they then subsequently return they will be put on the waiting list and given a place when one is available.

If a Scout does not attend for 4 non-consecutive weeks within a term, without informing a Leader in advance, we will contact you to ascertain whether they wish to remain a member. If they wish to remain a member they will be placed on the waiting list and given a place when one is available.

We are fully aware that our Scouts are involved in many other extracurricular activities and would never expect them to forego these in place of Scouting. What we do request is a certain level of courtesy to allow us to provide the best programme possible.
